 Jury: ITC Sangeet Research Academy, New Delhi

Artist of the month


Born on 16th November 1952, renowned santoor exponent, Satish Vyas is blessed with a formidable musical background and training, thanks to both his illustrious father Pandit C R Vyas and his guru, Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma who single-handedly elevated the santoor to concert status. The combination of training under both his father and Shivji gave Satish the ability to display gayaki ang as well as layakari and tantrakari ang in his Santoor playing.

An arduous musical training from a young age did not prevent Satish from pursuing his academic studies. He holds a Master’s Degree in Statistics and an MBA degree.

With numerous performances in major concerts all over India and several successful concert tours across the globe to his credit, Satish Vyas, an `A` Grade artiste of All India Radio, is a highly acclaimed musician. He was awarded the Padmashree by the Government of India in 2003. He is equally successful as a significant organizer of classical music festivals and as Artistic Director of Navras Records in India. The Gunidas Sangeet Sammelan, which he established in the memory of his father`s guru, has recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. He has a number of recordings to his credit with many international labels.
